WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Jody Hice (R-GA) recently congratulated Rachael Liu, a 2017 graduate of Archer High School and resident of Dacula, Georgia, who earned the Congressional Award Gold Medal. To receive this prestigious award, students must spend two or more years completing 400 hours of community service and focus an additional 200 hours on personal development and physical fitness.

“I was extremely proud to attend this year’s Congressional Award Gold Medal Ceremony and congratulate Rachael Liu on her achievements,” said Congressman Hice. “Rachael earned the highest honor that Congress can bestow upon a young person by completing over 450 volunteer hours at a local food ministry, serving more than 6,000 individuals and raising awareness on the issue of severe hunger. Her dedication and commitment to improving the 10th District, while bettering both her physical fitness and personal development, is to be commended. Ms. Liu is an asset to our community, and I applaud her on this distinguished accomplishment.”

This year’s award ceremony recognized 373 young people across 39 states, making it the largest class in the Congressional Award’s 38-year history.  Established by the United States Congress in 1979, the Congressional Award recognizes the initiative, service and achievement of young people aged 14 to 23.

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
